Episode VII – Crashed Star Destroyer

 Crashed Star Destroyer on Jakku, by KevFett2011, on Eurobricks

 

As most of you are probably aware I’m an OT fan, so when I saw the second teaser for The Force Awakens for the first time I was immediately taken by the crashed Star Destroyer that appears in one of the opening scenes.  It was quite odd to see the wrecked hull of it partially buried in a featureless expanse of a desert, but it looked just right and that leads me neatly onto this latest MOC by KevFett2011.

Measuring 75cm x 75cm, it’s taken him four months to build and in my opinion it’s KevFett2011’s best creation to date.  The Star Destroyer is impressive in itself; it’s obviously substantial and includes a mass of surface detailing and he’s used a clever mixture of dark-bluish grey and reddish-brown elements to replicate the damage caused by the harsh environmental conditions.  The surrounding sand dunes are superbly re-created and add a great final touch to it.  Head over to the Star Wars forum and take a better look at this stunning MOC.
